THE family of Harry Dunn is set to meet with Grant Schapps, Transport Secretary, and Matt Hancock, Health Secretary, as they search for answers into their son’s death and to ensure it never happens again.

Harry Dunn was tragically killed when the bike he was riding collided with a Volvo XC90 that was leaving RAF Croughton late last year. The car was alleged to have been driven by Ann Sacoolas and CCTV footage from the incident showed the Volvo leaving the base and setting off on the wrong side of the road.

Radd Sieger, a spokesman for the family said in a statement:

“I am pleased that Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, has agreed to sit down with the parents and I. A comprehensive road safety review is required and I look forward to shaping that with him”

“The ambulance took 43 minutes to get to Harry as he lay dying in a ditch on the side of the road. We have held a positive meeting so far with local NHS leaders to see if Team Harry can help shine a light on the complex reasons for why that was and why it happens so often and I am also pleased therefore to say that Matt Hancock, the Health and Social Care Secretary, has also agreed to sit down with us to discuss and agree what will be done to prevent any reoccurrence.”

The alleged driver of the car has so far avoided any questioning over the incident, after she left the country despite being asked to remain in the UK by the Police and authorities. She is thought to be residing back at home in the US under the veil of diplomatic immunity. It’s thought she flew out of the UK on a US Air Force flight as her husband is stationed at the airbase as a US intelligence officer.
